    • well for catholism ..its relationship with the world..the power…the traditions…the idols that our true GOD hated… wake up people..open your spiritual eyes..before its too late… hell is a horrible place…..God wants you to be saved…..

    • Sure ka? Saan mo makikitang itinuturo yan ng Simbahang Katoliko? Dapat maipakita mo na itinuturo talaga yan ng Simbahang Katoliko. Mahirap kasi kung sabi-sabi lang. Marami nang kumakalat sa na sabi-sabi ngayon eh.

  1. Ganun talaga..kaya nga Cross ang prominenteng simbolo sa Catholicism eh. Dahil dalawa ang dimension ng relationship sa Dios.

    Yung Vertical, man to God…through Jesus Christ. “Ako ang daan…walang makakapunta sa Ama kundi sa pamamagitan ko.” Juan 14:6

    Yung Horizontal, man to his neighbor…through Jesus Christ. “Sasabihin ng Hari (Hesus), ‘Tandaan ninyo, nang gawin ninyo ito sa isa sa mga alagad ko, siya man ang pinakahamak, ako (Hesus) ang inyong tinulungan.” Mateo 25:40

    Kung humiling man ang mga Kristiyano dito sa lupa sa mga Kristiyano doon sa langit na ipanalangin sila…that is because WE ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST. Nagtutulungan.

    “Sa pamamagitan ng pagkamatay ng Anak sa krus, nagkasundo ang Diyos at ang lahat ng nilika sa langit at sa lupa.” Colosas 1:20

    “At sa pamamagitan niya, nagkakaugnay-ugnay ang bawat bahagi ng gusali at nagiging isang templo.” Efeso 2:21

    Wala sa Biblia yung “It’s just between me and God” i.e. “Personal Relationship”.

    Di uso ang lone ranger sa Katoliko.

    • Tanong lang po. Eh diba po si Mary at ang mga Patron Saints ay matagal ng patay, at nasa langit na sila, so pano po natin masasabi na nariring nila yung mga dasal ng mga tao sa lupa? May nakasulat po ba sa Bible na binigyan sila ng kakayahan ng Diyos na marinig at i-bless ang mga panalangin ng mga nasa lupa?

      At ‘kung’ naririnig man nila tayo, bakit kailangan pa natin magdasal sa kanila or sa pamamagitan nila kung ang sabi naman sa Bible “Ako ang daan…walang makakapunta sa Ama kundi sa pamamagitan ko.” Juan 14:6

      Hindi po ba ang ibig sabihin nun ay dapat kay Hesus lang tayo tumawag at manalig at manampalataya At tanging sa kaniya lang dahil siya lang ang Diyos? Tapos sina Mary at ang ibang saints ay tao lang din na katulad natin.

    • wala ka palang personal relationship with God….kawawa ka.. ang ibig sabihin ng Efeso 2:21 ay hindi isang simbahan o religion..itoy mga taong totoong may pananalig sa totoong Dios kahit saan man sila naroroon..advice ko lng syo..kausapin mo ang Dios ng masinsinan and ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom….kung hindi..sabay sabay kayong mahuhulog sa patibong ni satanas….

    • [wala ka palang personal relationship with God….kawawa ka..]

      Sinong nagsabi sa iyong wala akong personal relationship with God? Interpretasyon mo lang iyan. Ang sabi ko walang nakasulat sa Biblia na “personal relationship”. Bakit di mo kaya ako bigyan ng talata sa Biblia na magpapakita niyan?

      Meron akong relationship sa Diyos. Very intimate dahil sa Banal na Eucharistia nandoon ang Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ (Mat. 26:26, Mark 14:22, Luke 22:18, 1Cor. 11:24). At sa pakikipag-kapwa, laging naroon nakikita ang Panginoon.

      [ang ibig sabihin ng Efeso 2:21 ay hindi isang simbahan o religion]

      Ang “Simbahan” ay “Church” sa English. And the Church is the Body of Christ…

      And he is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he may hold the primacy…(Colossians 1:18) .

      Ayaw mo sa Church? E si Cristo mismo nagtatag ng Church.

      And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (Matthew 16:18)

      Hindi yan either Jesus or the Church, kasi hindi yan either head or body.

      Tanggap namin yan, both Head (Jesus) and Body (Church) [Colossians 1:18]

      [..itoy mga taong totoong may pananalig sa totoong Dios kahit saan man sila naroroon..]

      Anong tawag ng mga “christians” dun? Di ba “”(invisible) church”? ayaw mo lang gamitin yung word na “church” eh.

      [advice ko lng syo..kausapin mo ang Dios ng masinsinan and ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom….kung hindi..sabay sabay kayong mahuhulog sa patibong ni satanas….]

      Salamat sa advice mo, salamat sa pagbabahagi mo ng iyong kaalaman. Ginagawa ko na yan.

  2. ano ang ibig ninyong sabihin ng relationship with God through Christ? paano makikipagrelasyon sa Dios sa pamamagitan ni Jesus? si Yahweh ba ang tinutukoy nyong ‘God”?

  3. Share ko lng ang pagkaka-intindi ko s Trinity, halimbawa Ako ang aking katawang lupa,ang aking Espiritu at ang aking salita ay iisa. S Diyos nman ang Ama ang physical Niyang anyo ay espiritu kung saan ito ay banal kaya Banal n Espiritu Santo at ang Kanyang salita n makapangyarihan n pinagkatawang tao Niya which is ang Panginoong Jesus. Totoo nga naman dahil sabi s bibliya,nkalimutan ko n nga lng kung saan banda n “ang lahat ng bagay ay nilikha Niya s pamamagitan ng salita”. Sabi nmn ni Juan “ang berbo ay nagkatawang tao” at sinabi din ng Panginoong Jesus n “walang anumang bagay ang hindi nalikha s pamamagitan ko”.

  4. Hello po..magandang umaga po sa inyo bago lang po ako sa site nato…marami lang po kasi akong doubts and now I still seeking for the truth…..diba sabi po ng bible exodo 20:2;5 “Huwag kang gagawa ng imahen ng anumang nilalang na nasa langit, nasa lupa, o nasa tubig upang sambahin. 5 Huwag mo silang yuyukuran ni sasambahin sapagkat akong si Yahweh na iyong Diyos ay mapanibughuing Diyos. Ang kasalanan ng mga magulang ay sinisingil ko sa kanilang mga anak hanggang sa ikatlo at ikaapat na salinlahi. Panu nyo po ba ito ipapaliwanag kng nakasaad naman po sa bible yan?Nakasala napo ba tayo sa hindi pagsunod sa utos ng dyos?

  6. I’m not a perfect person pag dating sa mga nakasulat sa biblia. But I think buhay si Jonah sa loob ng tiyan ng malaking isda. Ganito ang nakasaad sa Jonas 2:1-7 Habang si Jonas ay nasa tiyan ng isda, nanalangin siya ng ganito: “Yahweh, nang ako’y nasa kagipitan, nanalangin ako sa inyo, at sinagot ninyo ako. Mula sa daigdig ng mga patay ako’y tumawag sa inyo, at dininig ninyo ako. Itinapon ninyo ako sa kalaliman; sa pusod ng karagatan. Nabalot ako ng malakas na agos ng tubig,
    at malalaking alon ang sa akin ay tumabon. Akala ko’y malayo na ako sa inyo, at hindi ko na kailanman makikitang muli ang banal mong Templo. Habang si Jonas ay nasa tiyan ng isda, nanalangin siya. Pagkatapos, inutusan ni Yahweh ang isda na iluwa si Jonas sa dalampasigan.
    Hinigop ako ng kalaliman, hanggang sa tuluyang lumubog; napuluputan ang aking ulo ng mga halamang dagat. Ako’y bumaba sa paanan ng mga bundok, sa libingan ng mga patay. Ngunit mula roo’y buhay akong iniahon, O Yahweh.Nang maramdaman kong malalagot na ang aking hininga, naalala ko kayo, Yahweh. Ako’y nanalangin.

  7. Hindi sapat na kilala lang natin si Hesus at alam natin ang buhay Niya. Ang dapat ay isabuhay natin ang buhay ni Hesus dahil ito lang ang buhay na kalugod-lugod sa mata ng Mahal na Diyos Amang Makapangyarihan sa Lahat.

  8. alam nyo pare pareho kayong bumabato sa simbahang tunay at tatag ni kristo, nagkakasundo kayong mga protestante, sekta ng relihiyon na tao lang ang nagtatag basahin nyo man ang mga files ng SEC security and exchange commision lahat ng sekta sa pilpinas naka rehistro yan pwera lang ang simbahan katolika may mababasa kayo wala diba kase eto yung tunay, wala po akong nakita na nagbabatikos ng ibang sekta ang mga pari pag misa sa loob ng simbahan kundi pangangaral lang tunkol sa mabuting balita ng ating kaligtasan mula sa Diyos na buhay.

  9. The Roman Catholic Church is considered a not for profit entity in most legal jurisdictions. Not for Profit entities do not issues shares and therefore are not subject to securities and exchange oversight. Bottom line, its a religion not a share issuing company.

  10. “Ang ganda ng blog na to”

    Mga kapwa kong likha ng dyos.

    Tayo ay iisa lang ang pinanggalingan at iisa lang ang gumawa sa atin. Alam po nating lahat yan. Napansin ko lang po dito sa blog na ito meron pong mga tao na pinipilit sirain o bigyan ng maling puna ang simbahang katoliko. hindi po ba na iisa lang din ang ating sinasambang diyos? Kahit ganu katalino ang tao hindi tayo perpekto. Ang ibig sabin, gano kaman kagaling sa isang bagay ay magkakamali ka din. For example: npakagaling mo sa history ng bible o yung mga verse ng bible ay memories mo lahat ito ngunit sa pag bibigay ng understanding sa mga nakasulat dun ay hindi mo masasabing ikaw na ang pinakamagaling o pinaka tama o pinaka perpekto magpapaliwanag sa lahat”tao tayo hndi dyos” ngkakamali. Ang nais ko lang ipaliwanag dito, “wala po tayong karapatan” na batikusin ang relihiyon ng iba kung paanu ang paraan ng kanilang pagsasamba sa diyos” wala po sa bibliya ang pag compare or pambabatikos sa ibang relihiyon,di po ba? Why not build your faith nalang unto god using his churches.

    Peace!

  11. This how Dr. Scott Hahn teach Roman Catholics regarding Born-Again…

    Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.

    This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that you do, unless God is with him.”

    Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

    Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”

    Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

    That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

    Do not marvel that I said to you, `You must be born again.’

    The wind blows where it wills, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know whence it comes or whither it goes; so it is with every onewho is born of the Spirit.”

    Nicodemus said to him, “How can this be?”

    Jesus answered him, “Are you a teacher of Israel, and yet you do not understand this?

    Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen; but you do not receive our testimony.

    If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things?

    No one has ascended into heaven but he who descended from heaven, the Son of man.

    And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of man be lifted up,

    that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.”

    For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

    For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.

    He who believes in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

    And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

    For everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.

    But he who does what is true comes to the light, that it may be clearly seen that his deeds have been wrought in God.

    After this Jesus and his disciples went into the land of Judea; there he remained with them and baptized.

    The Greek word in the original text for “again” is “anothen”, which can more properly be translated as “from above”. So if we look at this terminology using “You must be born from ABOVE” instead of “You must be born AGAIN”, it takes on a slightly different meaning. Verse 5 above gives us a clue, when it says that

    “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. “

    Born of water AND the Spirit is a clarification from Jesus on what it means to be born from above. Water and the spirit, when combined in the Bible, means a new beginning. In Genesis 1:1, we see the spirit moving over the water, creating the new earth. Later on, when Noah was trying to see if there was land appearing, he sent out a dove over the water, to see if the new earth was ready. And while the dove wasn’t the Holy Spirit, it certainly was a precursor to the Baptism of Jesus, where we see the Holy Spirit descend as a dove over the waters of Jesus’ Baptism. Jesus had no sins, and therefore didn’t need to be baptized, of course, but his baptism sanctified the waters of baptism for us all, and shows us what really happens during our baptism – The Holy Spirit descends from heaven to our bodies, His temple.

    Clearly, being born again, or being born from above, is a reference to our baptism, which washes away our sins (Acts 22:16) and saves us (1 Peter 3:21). Jesus Himself, as if to show us that being born again is a reference to baptism, baptizes in verse 22 above, the only scriptural reference to Him baptizing anyone.

    Some people think that baptism is only “symbolic”, and not necessary for salvation, but that would fly in the face of Acts 22:16 and 1 Peter 3:21. John the Baptist even said that Jesus would baptize with the Holy Spirit, in Matthew 3:11.

    Acts 22:16: And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on his name.’

    1 Peter 3:21: Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a clear conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,

    Matthew 3:11: “I baptize you with water for repentance, but he who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry; he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.

    There are several Old Testament “types” or precursors to the Baptism in the New Testament. The aforementioned water and the spirit creation story in Genesis and dove over the water in the story about Noah – the creation of the earth, and man’s new beginning after the flood. But the primary one concerns a Naaman the Syrian, in 2 Kings 5. He was a commander of the Syrian Army, but he had leprosy. He went to see the prophet Elisha to get cured. Elisha told him to wash 7 times in the Jordan river, and he would be cured. Why 7 times? Well 7 is one of those numbers in the bible that means perfection – God rested on the 7th day, there are 7 archangels, 7 sacraments, etc. And why the Jordan river? Well, that is the river where John the Baptist many years later would be baptizing converts. Naaman was at first skeptical of all this, thinking that Elisha should just pray for him and the healing would be done. But God, through Elisha, wanted Naaman to physically go get washed in the Jordan. So Naaman did as he was told, and his leprosy was cured. This is a type of Baptism, where the water cleanses us of our sins, instead of our leprosy. In other words, water Baptism does for the soul what the water washing did for Naaman’s physical impurity of leprosy. Other references to being saved through water include the Israelites going through the parted Red Sea to escape Pharaoh’s army, and Moses striking the rock (Jesus is The Rock) in the desert to bring forth water for the Israelites.

    So the next time someone asks you if you are “born again”, just say “Yes, I have already been baptized, thank you!”
